I’ve been looking for the perfect pattern to knit my Handmaiden Fine Yarn Rumple. I wanted a shrug – a shawl, I felt, would be too drapey and too not able to keep its shape. So a shrug would do… and because of the type of yarn, probably a loose-ish one would do. I came across Boléro adulte la droguerie, however, it’s only in French (not too much of a problem, I’d imagine – could come in handy when attempting to translate German patterns later), however, it’s also only sold along with yarn in their store, in France, and in their only remaining publication which contains it and is not yet out of print: Petites Pièces et Petits Plus signés : la droguerie, not available online – anywhere.
So, if anyone has a copy, or is able to get their hands on one, of this pattern, or even the book, please do get in touch! I’d like to buy it off you if you’re looking to get rid of it. Or, if you can get one for me, and I can pay you back – either way. I’ve also emailed the store proprietor, incorrectly assuming that because the first publication that contained the pattern was out of print, that the second one was as well, but perhaps she’ll find a way to get me the book without having to mail a probably not accepted Canadian cheque to a French retailer somewhere I’ve never been and have no idea still exists.
Did you ever think you’d live to the day someone complained that there wasn’t a way to purchase something (safely) online? Lol, sorry – web dev joke.
